Beer prices looking to increase

Higher prices could soon be on tap for your favorite beer. Brewers report a shortage of hops across the world that's affecting things locally as well.

In fact, the Beer Depot in Lake Worth is now limiting customers when it comes to how much hops they can buy to make their own beer at home because some hops are really hard to come by.

The hops shortage means some prices for beer going up. So what's causing the shortage? Well, weather is hurting the crops. Also, some blame the farmers who would rather produce corn for ethanol than harvesting less profitable hops for other grains.
